out. they would prefer to have barack obama cleaning up barack obama this week, rather than joe biden cleaning him up. >> what do you think? vice-presidential debate is coming up. >> it just so happens that joe biden and paul ryan respect each other and get along very well. there were debt negotiations with those two were the ones that had the best rapport of all the participants. i think it will be a fun and enjoyable debate. joe biden has a good sense of humor. you are not going to see him and barack obama in the debate. >> i hope it is an existing debate. there were 50 million people watching the first debate. the question i have is, for how long? i was sitting there thinking, ok, obama did not show up to play. this is unbelievably boring. if i did not have to do this for a living, i would watch a show that i wanted to. >> it depends on your perspective. i found it fascinating. i was seized. my attention did not lapse for an hour-and-a-half. i think he might be slightly skewed. if you saw the joe biden clip, how does a man of uncertain age maintain such a high level of indignation,
two weeks in colorado, president obama's campaign and its allies ran seven television commercials for every five ads run for mitt romney. >>> seems free will is still surviving the 2012 presidential campaign so far. a poll in "usa today" finds that 18% of romney supporters and 24% of those who say they back president obama could still change their mind based on what happens in the debates. >>> and according to pugh research, more than six in ten voters are likely to watch the debate tonight. a majority, 51% to 29% think that president obama will do better than mitt romney. >>> rocker jon bon jovi is busy this week doing performances to support president obama. he has two appearances in iowa on friday. las vegas on saturday and on sunday he's going to perform at an obama fund raiser with stevie wonder and katie peri. this always sells. the web side bat lip reading is choosing paul ryan for its next victim after previous satires of president obama and mitt romney. they reworked a ryan video substituting different bizarre words as only bad lip reading could do. take a listen. >> i we
there will be a better prepared president obama onstage next week? and he said, quote, when you're not that bright, you can't get better prepared. mitt romney was aggressive but polite. that was a civil debate. this is not, i have to believe what mitt romney wants to be representing himself. >> let's hope not but john sununu said a few weeks ago barack obama was not a true american. he says these things. he will say whatever he thinks. >> it also fits into the grander picture, what you're seeing among conservative commentators now is this whole emperor has new clothes, has no clothes thing and the whole teleprompter from the last four years. they actually believe this guy isn't intelligent, which is crazy or it is bigoted. chris: i think it sounded ugly, i'll put it that way. your thoughts? >> i won't speak for all conservative commentators. chris: you don't have to. >> you certainly can make an argument and conservatives have been making an argument especially where foreign policy is concerned the administration has been incompetent. i don't take issue with sununu discussing the incompetence of this a
week by talking foreign policy today and attacking president obama as simply not someone leading. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope. hope is not a strategy. >> we don't know if that line is going to work, but we know from new polls out today he's made significant headway since the debate. puts a lot of pressure on the vice presidential debate later this week. we'll talk about it at athe bottom of the hour. >> we will see you later on that very topic. also this evening, one battleground state, michigan, will vote on a state constitutional amendment to allowing collective bargaining, unlimited wage increases, and unchecked union power. michigan's governor rick snyder says how it will disrupt his state. they paid hundreds of thousands to a chicago consulting firm for training sessions where employees chant and i quote our forefathers were illegal immigrants. i think that whole story is an outrage. we begin with another monday in the red. the dow closed down 27 points. the naz was off 24. the s&p was down jus
with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in the pew poll towards romney is greater among likely voters. romney is surging ahead to 49%. four weeks ago obama led among likely voters by eight. now to the latest gallup tracking poll which covers the last seven days. gallup has president obama back in the lead at 50 to 45. what a difference from the other polyp that's exactly where the race stood before the debate. romney had surged in the tracking poll. the two candidates were actually tied in the three days immediately after the debate, but the president seems to have wiped out romney's gains in the gallup poll. joining me right now are howard fineman, editorial director of the "huffington post," and the honorable michael nutter, mayor of philadelphia and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gentlemen, thank you for joining us. always go to the elected official first. mr. mayor, what needs to be done right now to right this ship, to get obama back on a w
it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, cutting the impact of any romney bounce. >> yeah he has an incredible amount of fire and energy when it is his back up against the wall. >> bill: yeah. >> it's almost like he puts himself in positions like that so that he can get excited about politics again. he obviously didn't want to be on that stage, wednesday night. you could just tell he was like, god, 90 minutes. i'm just going to stand here for 90 minutes and let this guy say stuff, and then he sees that the entire nation is mocking him, and then he get
% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virginia, florida, and see whether in fact the race has tightened, particularly in a state like ohio, wolf, where the president had a commanding lead by five or six points. let's see if in that state which the republican campaign has to win, i believe, if mitt romney's to become president, let's see if the poll numbers in that state of ohio which we're going to see as this week proceeds, let's see if those numbers have tightened there because that's going to be a k
nationally. right now, romney at 49%. obama at 45%. that's a significant shift from only a few weeks ago. same poll, likely voters at obama 51%. romney, 43%. that's a dramatic shift indeed. let's get the reaction, jim acosta is traveling with the republican presidential nominee. what are they saying, jim? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that mitt romney is standing behind me addressing an understandably small crowd of supporters here at newport news, virginia, it is raining buckets here. but that's not dampening the enthusiasm of the romney campaign. they feel very good about this poll that just came out from the pew research center, showing a four-point lead among likely voters for mitt romney over the president. that is a kind of poll that they have not seen in some time. so they're very happy about that. i got some instant response from a senior romney official who told me over an e-mail a few moments ago that they are encouraged by the enthusiasm that they're seeing from supporters who they call energized. we have been seeing that over the last several days at various cam
signaled he would do that for weeks. obama's team even said to me we can't believe romney's signaling he's going to do that because we're already prepared for what he's going to do. and then obama failed to respond. >> rose: go ahead. >> when mitt romney was fulmining against the wall street banks, which would would have thought that moment, again that moment like josh said where the president was like really, mitt romney's like saying dodd-frank was not tough enough. i thought that you saw, you know, to go back to the old trop, people knocked around the campaign when the etch-a-sketch comment was made back at the end of the primaries. but the truth is -- >> rose: he's going to write a new script is what he said. >> yes and the obama campaign thought that's what they expected to happen. that's why they thought romney was a dangerous candidate because he would etch-a sketch and go back to being a previous incarnation which is a base loving base enthusiastic trying candidate. he would be a pragmatic moderate massachusetts governor. that would be a dangerous candidate for them to have to
network. >> good morning. >> hifsh. the election weeks away now. president obama working quickly to nominate a new treasury secretary to replace timothy geithner with a mix of spending cuts and tax increases looming obama would likely pass someone with negotiating experience probably someone within as well. according to the wall street journal the two persons mentioned are white house chief of staff clinton blue anderson bowls. glen hubbard from the columbia schools. >> airlines making changes hair. over the past five years the airline cut smaller fees and flights shorter than 500 miles. that's kierd to go a new study by the office of inspector general of the department of transportation. another money saving strategy for the airlines and you are definitely familiar with this one. packing more passengers into bigger planes. is there any consolation for fliers out there? according to the study your flight has a greater chance of being on time and not being kept. >> that's good news. >> homeowner's insurance. you have new information for us. >> we are more satisfied than ever when
that obama -- that romney needed going into this, you know, with just a couple weeks away? >> it's very much the narrative he needed, because his campaign was about to be blown away. president obama generally has been running a much better campaign than mitt romney has, but in the last week or so, the mitt romney campaign i think is getting its act together. he had a very, very good debate, obviously. he was more personal on the stump, he was in florida the last few days, he was willing to talk in an emotionally connective way. he gave a foreign policy speech today that was -- had a lot of vagueness in it but was by far and way the best foreign policy speech in my judgment he's made, the most comprehensive on the middle east. he's finding his voice, finding solidity but the polls are really hard to understand right now. not only this pew poll but we had one of the strangest days in polling in gallup i have ever seen. this morning they put out a tracking poll that said the race was tied. this afternoon they put out a second tracking poll saying obama had a five point lead. what can you make o
changed. >> ari, before last week, president obama was showing strong signs of improvement on the economy, closing the gap in most polls. but i want to show you a number. the pew poll shows that 54% of registered voters agree with the phrase doubt that obama knows how to turn the economy around. what do you make of that? >> that's been consistent, and it's been mitt romney's hope. if this is an election about the state of the economy and whether the president is partially or enough to blame for the bad economy, he's going to lose. that's why you see the president has been launching an attack against bain and other things that he was doing. so that's been the weakness and the numbers, too, that i'm looking for on the inside the polls are mitt romney's attributes and his ratings among independents because forget whether the polls are skewed for ds or rs, as long as mitt romney keeps winning independents, chances are mitt romney's going to win. in this pew poll, he won independents today, having nothing to do with whether it's skewed one party or the other. that's something to keep your eye
's poor performance last week. also, this is a campaign where president obama is running as much against paul ryan's ideas as he is against mitt romney. that elevates ryan as well. >> it seems clear in choosing chris van holland they will go against the first ryan budget, the first medicare plan and also the ryan book. they will go after the budget cuts and troo to tag mitt romney with the severity, using the term relatively, of the ryan budget cuts. >> right. rom uh any down played the ryan road map. keep in mind the first ryan budget plan included privatizing social security, at least to a certain extent. that's something ryan then dropped in his subsequent budgets. it was there and he was one of the advocates of the plan to put it in the market. secondly the medicare issue. those entitlements, we'll ha from biden about thursday. a lot of democrats think he dropped the ball not pushing the issues against mitt romney. joe biden will read ryan's book and go after those entitlements. >> up next, as mitt romney focuses on foreign policy we'll get a reality check on the challenges abroad. [
. countdown to election day with five weeks to go, and president obama is out west holding a rally this hour at a las vegas high school. he will be on the road through wednesday's first presidential debate. mitt romney keeping a lower profile this weekend, and tomorrow he heads to colorado rallying a crowd and preparing for wednesday's debate. key decision makers attended the red mass including six of the nine supreme court justices. the annual event aims to bring people together to pray for the members of the judiciary before the court hears cases, and it's colored red mass because of the color of the garments of the clergy. >>> a christian pakistany girl accused of desecrating the koran is set to be cleared of all charges. the 14-year-old was not only innocent but was framed by a muslim cleric in her hometown. the cleric faces blasphemy charges of his own for tearing pages out of the koran to use against the girl. >>> it's the face-to-face showdown political watchers and voters have been waiting for. no tv ads, no campaign surrogates, just the president and his khal challenger one-on-one.
. >> i am at the white house. a big week for president obama as he faces his gop opponent in the first presidential debate in wednesday on wednesday. a lot is riding on the performance of each candidate and both campaigns are trying to lower expectations. following the debate the president will spend the next two days campaigning in the important battleground state of ohio. by the way, president obama will prepare for the debates in nevada where he will also hold a campaign rally. >>> and i am paul on the campaign trail. mitt romney flies to colorado tomorrow. he holds a rally in the swing state tomorrow night before making final preparations, and meanwhile paul ryan will campaign in iowa >>> i am poppy harlow. the september jobs report will be key for the market, and also key in the race for the white house. also ahead, we will get a look at september auto sales data as well as the latest look at construction spending. we will show if those indicate or show any signs of improvement like we have been seeing in the housing market. and shedding more light on the central bank's decision t
. but the 2012 version of that theory now is that mitt romney cheated in the debate against president obama this week not by having somebody feed him the answers through an ear piece but rather by bringing the illegal crib sheet on to the debate stage with him. you see, previous debate rules have set out very clearly that, quote, no props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by any candidate and yet have a look at this damning evidence. this is at the very beginning of the debate on wednesday night and as you'll be able to see clearly here what is that in your pocket? mr. romney very clearly pulls something from his right pocket and he pops it on to the podium in front of him. violation. violation. according to the conspiracy, complete with the grainy, slow mo youtube videos, this is mr. romney cheating. now he must have been working from note cards the entire debate. the explanation from the romney campaign is mr. romney was not pulling notes out of his pocket. he was pulling out of his pocket a handkerchief. sure enough, a lit
. enough. thank you. up next, a debate guru tells us what romney and obama did right and wrong this week and how they need to rethink their strategies. úwñoa [ male announcer ] citibank's app for ipad makes it easy for anne to manage her finances when she's on the go. even when she's not going anywhere. citibank for ipad. easier banking. standard at citibank. helps him deposit his checks. jay also like it when mother nature helps him wash his car. mother nature's cool like that. mobile check deposit. easier banking. standard at citibank. >> chris: he has been called the nation's best political debate coach. he prepped george w. bush in 2004. john mccain in 2008 and michele bachmann and then mitt romney in this primary campaign. we asked brett o'donnell to join us today to talk about this week's debate and how both candidates need to recalibrate for the next one. the big i think it is fare to coming out of this debate is what happened to president obama. why did he do so poorly. obviously you were in the room but best guess what do you think his debate team failed to do to prepare him
couple weeks on libya you will see governor romney try to go after president obama on competence, on foreign policy but also on the broader issue of competence and leadership. >> and that brings you to the fourth point which is president obama ready for prime time? he's been president for four years. >> right. >> and he is well known for being able to give the great speech. >> right. >> is he ready for this combat? >> that's right. i mean, governor romney, the 20th in the course of the primary, this is a different level. president obama has nodd not ha one for some time. i think president obama has to be careful month to not come off as too harsh. hillary, you're likable enough, when the president can come off a little bit cold. so i think he's going to have to be careful on that. >> and finally, as we go, who brings up bill clinton first? will we see he's campaigning in new hampshire today so he's being deployed. >> i have no doubt that president obama will be happy to invoke bill clinton's support here. and i wouldn't be surprised if romney mentioned him either in terms of tryi
will have to happen is president obama will have to have a much better debate in new york, about a week and a half away. i've talked to a lot of democrats and big obama fans who are miserable about the president's debate performance because they think he did a bad job and might have ruined his chances. >> why do you think that was? >> you know, part of it was president obama's strategy. he wanted to come in looking presidential. david axlerod says in a conference call this week with reporters that the president didn't want the american people to see two candidates on stage insulting each other and for that reason he stayed above the fray but he needed to look for aggressive. >> stay above the fray? right after the debate, the president's campaign officials and advisories called mitt romney a liar. >> they absolutely did. and i think that's because they realized the strategy didn't work. >> let me ask you about campaign contributions. the obama campaign saying that 181 million i believe was raised in small donations. nevertheless, governor romney was able to raise more than 10 million ri
has a few weeks left to go to reverse president obama's lead. president obama on the other hand did not always look so pleased to be challenged the way romney was challenging him. he did not make any big mistakes and one of the questions coming out of this debate, as good as republicans feel and as middling as testimonies feel about this performance, did it really do enough to change the dynamic in the race.feel about this performance, did it really do enough to change the dynamic in the race. next week it's paul ryan and joe biden. and then two more presidential debates. we'll watch the polls for see the impact. >> what was your verdict? we all have our own panel of strategists that will be coming up at 11:30 cet, that's 5:30 eastern. but we do want to hear from you, as well. what did you make of the debate and performance of each of the candidates? you can send us an e-mail at worldwide@cnbc.com. or via twitter, follow the sh show @cnbcwex. or tweet me directly. several of you already writing with your thoughts. @beccymeehan. let me know what you think about the u.s. presidential
